Oftentimes the things will not start after sitting idle all winter as last year's gasoline has turned into a lacquer which has blocked the flow of fuel through the small passages in the carburetor. there is at least one product, called Stabil, which you dump into the gas tank which precludes this. So maybe a carb rebuild and clean out is in order; and if it then works OK you should make a point to put some of that stuff in your tank at the end of the season. Works well for RVs also.

My engine turns but does not start i am getting spark at the plugs i dont think there is enough fuel being pumped in


Try getting a can off carb cleaner or brake cleaner and give it a good spray in the throttle/carb this will likely do the trick.

24 hp Briggs Stratton sears riding mower engine wont start unless you use start fluid cleaned filter have flow to engine


If the mower starts and continues to run after injecting, you may want to make sure the choke is working properly. If the choke plate is not closing all the way, it will make cold starts difficult.

I have a sears craftsman tractor,18 hp electric start. No. 917.254860. engine no. 422707,type no. 1522.01. briggs and stratton. engine won,t turn over. Replaced plugs,coil,carborator rebuilt to specs. New...


From your description it seems that the starter is not engaging to turn over the engine. First ensure all the connections of the thicker cables to the battery, starter and tractor frame are clean and tight. If starter motor is turning but still not engaging it will mean that the pinion on the starter motor is binding on the shaft. You can buy a new starter pinion gear from your local B & S agent.
To replace pinion, remove starter motor from engine, remove old pinion and put on new one and reattach starter to engine. If fuel & spark are right you should be up amd running.

My Briggs Vangard 18hp twin V has problems starting. I replaced the starter solinoid but it is still a no go. I can jump the solinoid and get the starter to spin but no fire to the plugs, Any ideas?


This is most likely being caused by one of the safety switches cutting off current flow to the solenoid. turn the key on and jump the solenoid and see if you get spark to the plugs. If so you have a safety switch issue...one is under the seat, one is on the clutch pedal, one is on the reverse position and one is on the blade engagement lever. hope this helps you
